The Mother Trip: Hip Mama's Guide to Staying Sane in the Chaos of Motherhood (Live Girls)

by Ariel Gore Author and Ellen Forney Illustrator

Part memoir, part practical advice, The Mother Trip looks at what it means to become a mother and how handle that. Ariel Gore structures the book by topic - though those topics range from "Sleep" to "Children are Not Pizza Pies". Overall, it's a realistic look at the many facets of motherhood and how different people manage to raise kids without completely giving up their sense of freedom.
